Re: invalid disk error

I had a problem with a Lite-On Lite-On that had been working fine then stopped reading any disc--sometimes it would go through the motions of recording if a disc was in and a timed recording was due to start. After recording it would not read the disc. A google search led me to find the a dirty laser would cause this. I removed the cover and with a clean lint free cloth I used rubbing alcohol to clean it and it has worked fine since. While I had the cover off I took the unit to my garage and used an air compressor to blow all the dust out of the unit and cleaned the laser again just in case. That was about 6 weeks ago and it works fine. My unit has a cooling fan that I think contributed to the dust problem.

In most cases, the issue might be with the Java content on the new Blu-ray discs is making this issues. The Blu-ray technology is developing everyday and adding more and more features to the existing technology. Hence it is required to make the Blu-ray Player up-to-date by installing the latest firmware update available from the manufacturer (who ever it is). Going ahead with the first step, please install the latest firmware update available for the Blu-ray Player.

Please click hear to download the latest firmware update available for your Blu-ray Player:

You can review the "Important Notes" and "Firmware Update Instructions" on the page to get the instructions to install the firmware update.
If the issue persists after installing the firmware update, the would have been with the disc. Check the disc with another player, try different discs with same player.
If the Blu-ray Player is not at all playing any Blu-ray disc, then it may require service. Please let me know if you require any further assistance with installation or need any clarification. It is my pleasure assisting

I get an error Message when I try to play a 3d blu ray disc on my Sony 570 blu ray player. The guys at best buy say I have to buy a $30.00 disc from them to upgrade the players software. Is that true, or...

Some blue ray disks play and some don't. It seems like the newer one are the problems. Is there a firmware update and if so how do I obtain it and run it.

Most major brands have a simple method of updating Firmware. You download the FW file, burn it to a disk. Put the disk in the player. The player will recognize the update and handle the update. It may take some time as some files are large.

Warning: Updating with the wrong version of Firmware, or if the process is interrupted, it can render you player useless.

Find the version your player is currently using. Then go to Sony Support to see if there is a newer version available. Hope this helps.

My samsung BD-P2500 Bluray player is stuck at a load message

First try disconnecting power cord for five minutes. On restart keep playing eject while the unit is starting up, to eject if there is a disk stuck inside.

Contact Samsung support number, listed on the owners manual. If a firmware update is available they will guide through the update.

If the firmware update does not fix the problem, then the BD player may have a defective or dirty lens.

Using lens cleaner can invalidate warranty, talk to Samsung first.

Invalid disk error

Did you get this working? If not, then your DVD isn't supposed to be region free in the first place, and I can send you a firmware which I have used a hack in order to make region free. You can then take this firmware and follow the same instructions you used for the other firmware.

SAMSUNG DVD R120 error EC:0207

I had exactly the same problem -- error message of "This disc can be neither played nor recorded. Please check the disk [EC:0207]" after the machine had been working fine for a year. I downloaded the latest firmware from the Samsung website, burned it to a CD-R disk (took three tries until the DVD Recorder recognized the disk -- worked when I used Rocio CD Creater software), then loaded the firmware updates to the DVD Recorder. On the Samsung website you can retrive the firmware update instructions as well. I had to perform the firmware upgrade several times until it successfully updated both the system firmware as well as the disk firmware. After successfully updating both, the Recorder now recognizes the DVD-R disks and I was able to resume recording. I have however, noted some choppiness with the playback of the newly recorded disks. Other than that, the firmware upgrade successfully resolved the problem.
